The original has aged quite well, graphics-wise, but I guess that's simply because how slow graphics development has been this gen.

The most incredible thing is that if Crysis was released this year it would easily be the 2012 graphics king lol.

What a good game it was. After playing the alpha for Cry3, I'm not very interested in that game anymore.
#8 Posted by hoola (6422 posts) -

Still looks better than 99% of games on the market, and is graphics king if mods are included.

I still say Crysis is in the top 2 or 3 best graphics.

I stll play this quite a bit too, the gameplay is awesome. I love going through the levels in different ways. sometimes i take a humvey and smash it through buildings, or ill get a sniper and snipe everyone. Or I can get a rocket launcher and blow EVERYTHING up.

Lol blaming consoles. How pathetic

Blame Crytek and EA for getting greedy and wanting that console market rather than staying true to the franchise.

Apart from the graphics..... Crysis is one of the few games that give a fairly accurate portrayal of cover and concealment using the foliage. I still keep going back to it from time to time.

Edit: Too bad there's no full-blown simulation (ala ARMA 2) based on CE2. It'd make a great training tool for the forested mountains of say, the Philippines and Colombia.

And I have yet to play it on max settings. I look forward to doing that when I build my new rig. I intend to use whatever mod makes the game look the best.

Will probably look better than 90% of next gen console games.

#34 Posted by Truth_Hurts_U (9572 posts) -

Bad optimization.

Just replayed it a week after the whole free origin game thing happened. Maxed settings... Game didn't look as good as it once did.

Didn't get around to replaying crysis warhead again. But crysis 2 nano suit is far better then 1's and it runs many times better too.

The beauty of Crysis, is that you can stick a mod on the game to make it look even better. When the game first came out, it looked like nothing we had seen. Now its got some challenges from other PC titles.

Well,looking at what the first next gen console has to offer so far,I don´t see anything there that beats Crysis.

If you go by frame rate numbers alone, maybe. But, I found Crysis at 25-30 fps plays better than some games at 40-50 fps. Take Oblivion for example. I easily get 40-50 fps in that game while Crysis stays around the low-mid 30's. But, Crysis seemed way more playable.

Maxed out, I daresay it could at least be better than the first few titles that come out for the next gen consoles.

That is mostly because Cyrsis has a bunch of decent motion blur

Not counting WiiU what games exactly are you talking about? The only next gen games I've seen so far were Watch Dogs and Star Wars 1313 and Crysis doesnt look better then neither of those visually

I thought that was it. But, I keep motion blur turned off most of the time (along with keeping sound quality at Low) and crysis still feels more playable. Perhaps the game doesn't really turn off all motion blur.

Watch Dogs and Star Wars 1313 are current gen games, and Watch Dogs will only look that good(like the demo) on PC so that's ruled out. We haven't really seen any next gen games as of now, aside from what the wiiu has to offer.
#45 Posted by Basinboy (11490 posts) -

A fantastic shooter with regard to both visuals and gameplay. While Crysis 2 was a departure from a number of the elements that many adored about Crysis, I still feel Crysis 2 was a better game with several superior storytelling and environment elements.

Regardless, both games' cloak ability totally break the design, since you can literally sneak past practically everybody and everything. And some of the guns are very rote, not a lot of creativity in the shooting mechanics. If Crysis had the gun design of Resistance 3, it would be the top sci-fi FPS of this generation.

Those two are current gen games,the footage you saw at E3 was from the PC versions,current gen console versions will look significantly worse.

It's not that Crysis was ahead of it's time, but that graphics development have lagged behind consoles.

Companies want money and consoles are what makes it. No point in making an expensive graphically beautiful PC game if it can't be ported to Xbox/PS3.

That's why I can't wait for the new consoles,

Something tells me we're gonna see both Watch Dogs and star wars looking like that in next gen consoles. The PS3 and 360 still received many last gen games with an HD treatment.

Again, what exactly makes you think they wont still be released looking like that on next gen consoles?

Anyway, you still didnt respond my question. What games were you talking about when you said Crysis looked better then what you've seen of next gen? Unless you were talking about the WiiU that is, that is no more then "current gen at 1080p"
